UFC Fighter Gives Update On His Power Drill Scrotum Injury

The Ultimate Fighter 27 alum Bryce Mitchell was undoubtedly looking to make headlines following his first UFC win in July of 2018, but not like this. The 24 year old featherweight is best known these days for being ‘the UFC fighter that got his nutsack ripped off by a power drill.’ Yes, that’s right. And no, this isn’t a clickbait over-exaggeration. Here’s what happened in Mitchell’s own words:

Fortunately, we can now relay the good news that Bryce’s private parts have been successfully re-attached with no lasting damage. Here’s MMA Fighting’s update with Bryce, who seems to find all this just as funny as everyone else, even if the incident did almost kill him.

“It was like my stomach dropped and I thought that my dick had been ripped off and my balls was gone and my stomach just dropped like it’s never dropped before. Felt like a five-gallon tank was sitting in my stomach and I just couldn’t believe it. I thought, ‘Well, shit I’m dead. I’m gonna sit here and bleed out.’ I looked down and everything was still good, so I got lucky.”

“Basically what happened is I was pre-drilling some wood, trying to put some bolts through it, and I had one of those drill bits that eats through wood on it,” said Mitchell. “It’s titanium-plated, eats right through wood. Well, I stuffed that in my pants because I was holding the board and I moved and it pulled the trigger, wrapped up my nuts around that drill bit and just ripped ‘em to f*ckin’ shreds, man. Just ripped ‘em to shreds. But luckily, my testicles did not get ripped off. That was a big thing. My testicles actually wrapped up there for a minute, when it first happened I thought I lost a testicle — it would have damn near killed me, as far as I was away from the hospital, as long as the treatment took, the amount of blood that I lost. I probably would have died if the testicle would have got ripped off.

“I get to sit back and rap about it now, but man, I really f*cked up. I really, really f*cked up, and you shouldn’t put a f*ckin’ drill in your pants, it’s just not smart.”

Mitchell credited his MMA training for helping him to stay calm during a situation that probably would have overwhelmed many others. Shockingly, the whole thing was sewn back up with just 13 stitches and the UFC featherweight has made a full recovery. He hopes to return to the Octagon sometime in January or February 2019.

Your Weekly Conor McGregor Update

If the MMA world goes too long without Conor McGregor, it starts to fall apart. UFC champs fail to make weight, and lose their belts as a result. People get injured. People file lawsuits. It’s nuts.

But with our favorite Irishman supposedly facing off against lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 228, well, we can all rejoice. Rejoice!

And the UFC can kick their hype machine in high gear and start spending some of that allotted marketing budget.

Oh wait, it looks like they already have…

So I guess if you set aside the always lingering possibility that Nurmagomedov could get injured at the last minute and McGregor instead has to face Dustin Poirier, the biggest topic of debate is can Khabib beat Conor.

Sure he can. With his wrestling prowess and constant, suffocating pressure, he can beat anyone. And he has!

But the flipside to that coin is whether or not McGregor can knock the Dagestani out before grappling even becomes a factor. And guess what? McGregor excels and landing knockout punches while moving backward, and with his insane accuracy, he’s able to tag nearly any exposed chin. Remember former champ Eddie Alvarez?

All that combat stuff is actually only half the reason we’ll be tuning in, of course. The other half is for whatever gems spill forth from McGregor’s mouth… because the man is one hell of a self-promoter, and his trash-talk is the best, bar none.

Will McGregor make fun of the bear Nurmagomedov used to wrestle? Will he throw some shade on that big, fuzzy hat? I just don’t know.

I do know it will be awesome.

Injured Johnson Provides Knee, Foot Update

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson, finally got some good news after a disappointing weekend in Los Angeles, one that saw “Mighty Mouse” get trapped by division rival Henry Cejudo.

And cough up his crown in the process.

Johnson believed he suffered a broken foot while chasing “The Messenger” but X-rays show the bones are still intact. As far as the possible tear in his knee, the 125-pound dynamo says those results are still pending.

“I got X-rays on my foot, everything seems to be fine,” Johnson told his Instagram followers. “If the pain is still there, if the swelling is still there after 10 days, I’ll have another MRI to make sure nothing’s wrong with it. I got an MRI on my knee, no results yet, takes about two days.”

Either way, I would not expect Johnson back in action before 2019.

When he does return, it would not surprise me to hear UFC has ordered an immediate rematch. While Cejudo has been chirping about super fights opposite bantamweight kingpin TJ Dillashaw, “The Messenger” won a five-round split decision (recap) and hasn’t made a single title defense.

I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

Paige VanZant Gives a Surgery Update and It’s Gnarly

Normally, for any posts about UFC starlet Paige VanZant, I’d make the main photo more relevant to the content of the story. But no, not this time.

You see, VanZant has been nursing a busted wing for a while, and got surgery to fix it. And she posted a post-surgery pic… and damn is it gnarly. So instead of tormenting everyone who goes to the CagedInsider main page with a look at Frankenstein’s forearm, I have posted a pic of the little dancer/fighter in more appetizing times.

Geez, get well soon, Paige, but definitely let that nastiness heal.

Soooooo, do you think there’s gunna be a scar?? #ufc
